Beginning with dances of eyes closed movers and wide eyed witnesses – the inner landscape and how it travels outwards will be our focus. Drawing from AM (Authentic Movement), somatics, meditation. Let’s give space to listen to, develop, explore the inside.
This going in is not meant as an escape but rather as a resource to draw from in our dancing and performing. As Audre Lorde once wrote: “When we begin to live from within outward…then we begin to be responsible to ourselves in the deepest sense.” During these sessions we’ll work with what’s present that day – our needs as individuals and as a collective. Depending on these needs in addition to the closed eyed dances we can test what it is to practice set movements with eyes closes (for example using ballet), create scores, work from and with our sight and invent dances together.
